Kim Kardashian isn’t letting go of her anger at Taylor Swift. Kardashian, Swift, and Kim’s husband, Kanye West, have been throwing so much shade at each other it’s a wonder the sun is even still shining, and Kim just tossed another huge pile of it at Swift. Hollywood Life reports that Kim just can’t get enough of “throwing Taylor Swift under the bus,” and on July 23, she posted a video of herself singing the one song that Taylor probably never wants to hear again. The reality star looks like she’s having a great time singing the “controversial lyrics” to West’s “Famous.”
It’s only a week since Kim was attacking Taylor by letting the world listen to a “private phone conversation” that Swift and Kanye had about “Famous.” Kardashian released the recording of the call on Snapchat, along with a taunt on Twitter for the “Bad Blood” singer to follow her Snapchat account. Taylor was furious and even threatened to sue Kim and get her put away in jail. The jail threat didn’t materialize, and the added fuel to the feud fire did nothing to calm the tensions between Swift and West.
That was bad enough, but now she’s making sure Taylor really gets the “Famous” message about how Swift is “a b****” and is only famous herself because Kanye made her career.
Kim was out partying and dancing at Hakkasan, a trendy Las Vegas nightclub, when she decided to start “singing along to” to her husband’s song. The Independent reports that the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star “can be glimpsed smiling” while the song plays, and she mouths some of the lyrics. In the “indirect swipe” at Swift, Kim makes sure to pick the words that will make her feelings on the matter clear. She doesn’t sing all the words, or even lip sync throughout the song, and instead focuses on the parts that are the ongoing source “of so much drama” between Kanye and Taylor.
“I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex / Why? I made that b**** famous.”
Us Weekly reports that while Kim and a friend were both bopping and singing along with “Famous,” the “pal jokingly covering her mouth” when the dangerous words came up. It was a different story for how Kim handled the words about Taylor and “pretty obvious” that she was thoroughly enjoying the situation. Kardashian “continued to power through” the rest of the verse, including the part that got Swift so angry.
The “Famous” incident happened while Kardashian’s psoriasis troubles are making the news, too.
The Daily Mail reports that Kim’s psoriasis is “painful looking” and though the “disfiguring condition” didn’t stop her from partying, it may have made her feel more irritable than usual.
Kim is always very upfront about her psoriasis, which she inherited from her mother Kris Jenner, who also developed psoriasis in her thirties.
“I have psoriasis, there is nothing I can do about it so there is no reason why I should feel uncomfortable.”
The reality star and model appeared to be totally comfortable with herself and her psoriasis in the Snapchat video of her “Famous” performance. But Kardashian didn’t seem to mind at all if she made Taylor and her Swifty squad uncomfortable, “rubbing it in Taylor’s face” about the “b****” lyrics. It’s true that Kim was “really upset” when she found out that Taylor was “lying about not approving the lyrics” to the song, but she’s already put the “super famous singer” on the spot and blasted her once this week.
The fighting between Taylor, Kanye, and the Kardashians, who have started to rally around Kim and Kanye, doesn’t look like it’s going to simmer down any time soon. What do you think? Will Taylor forget the whole thing while she’s enjoying her romance with Tom Hiddleston, and will the Kardashian-West camp stop taunting her?
